The University of Queensland’s School of Music is delighted to present Sergio Tiempo, one of the most individual and thought-provoking pianists of his generation, in an exclusive masterclass with UQ piano majors on Thursday 26th July 2018 at 6:00pm.




Sergio Tiempo made his professional debut at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw aged fourteen and soon became internationally renowned for his raw energy and musical versatility, from Brahms to Villa-Lobos and Ginastera. Recent highlights have included an eight-concert tour of Ginastera’s First Piano Concerto across the US and Europe with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel; a tour to China, Taiwan and New Zealand; and recitals at the Bergen International Festival.


Further orchestral collaborations include the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Simón Bolívar Orchestra, Singapore Symphony and BBC Symphony alongside eminent conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Myung Whun Chung and Leonard Slatkin. A committed recitalist, engagements have included a sell-out recital debut at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Wigmore Hall and the Berlin Philharmonie.


Sergio Tiempo has made a number of highly distinctive and acclaimed recordings. With Karin Lechner he has recorded Tango Rhapsody by Federico Jusid, commissioned especially for the duo and the RSI Lugano. Further recordings with Karin Lechner include a disc of French music entitled ‘La Belle Epoque’ released on Avanti Classics, a label with whom Sergio Tiempo will be releasing two separate duo recordings with his musical mentors Martha Argerich and Nelson Freire, as well as a solo album in September 2017.
